The type of leather makes a difference.  CXL molds/conforms to your foot much better than other leathers.  It gets more supple and soft as they break in.  :)

 

However, the width shouldn't hurt your feet when they are new.

I had the Visvim Brigadiers as my grails, but these look similar enough.

 

Which colorway is this and how does one size? I read through this topic and the consensus is TTS or 0.5 size down. I wear an 8 in Clarks/RW, for reference.

 

Thanks.

No Idea about sizing. I sized down about .5 but I just picked a random number. I think last time I was in Allen Edmonds, they sized me at 9.5. I wear 9's in 1000 mile and they are still pretty loose

These are rust.

That's your perogative. I personally think these boots were never meant for you.

Boot crease guy.

 

Return the boots. Ask for another pair that have never been tried on. Make that a special note in the email. Use many exclamation points.

 

Upon receiving carefully remove from box and instagram the shit out of them, Replace and put away in safe place. Take Moto X to bars and impress ladies with pristine boot shots. Go home alone. Look at boots. Weep quietly. Masturbate. Fall asleep.

 

Wake up the next morning and decide that maybe it's time for a change. Put boots on - this is important - don't look at them. Go outside. Walk until you're tired. Find the oldest guy you can and invite him to lunch. Ask him the story of his life - what he dreamed of as a young man, his first love, his best fuck (if you feel that would be cool), greatest regret, the battles he fought, the ones that got away. Listen. Look at his hands as he talks, the way they're still alive with memory. Thank him for his time. Pick up the tab.

 

Go home. Take boots off and look at them. Realize that nobody gives a fuck about what your boots look like. They may, however, be interested in what you did in them. The way, I hope, you were interested in what this old guy had to say.

 

Give boots a quick horsehair brush (I do). Put away. Go to bed. Masturbate. Sleep.

 

Dream.

Crane these are your boots after a few years of wear.

No crease as bad as the pair you just sold me.

I agree with smith for another reason. The per existing crease in his boot is a common signature or a poor quality piece of leather. The way it looks like a paper bag crinkling over pebbles is something to avoid in leather goods.

I believe the term is flaky or flanky or something like that.

Really?

Again, it's what CXL does and I'm not joking when I said these boots may not be for you.

That makes me want to go hiking with you.

 

Called it "patina" and charge another hundred.

Funny, after three years your boots don't have as bad of a crease as my "new" boots do.

LOL! I have been asked if I would sell my boots before Lefty. Hell I could be the next famous designer label! ROFLMAO!

They do have the whole patina thing going on for sure.

I'm done listening to your nonsense. Return them for a refund and no we will not order you another pair.

That's why I can never work retail.

 

You guys are putting way too many expectations on a medium priced work boot.

I'm sure Wings + Horns could replicate that wear on 1k's and charge $300 more LOL
